I Just Love Moving, Don't You?

Two weeks ago I embarked on one of the biggest moves of my life. I moved from a second floor apartment to a house.

Have you had the fun of packing up and moving your craft room? Oh my gosh! I never knew I could create such a mess all by myself, but I sure did. I also learned that every little scrap of paper, color of paint, ephemera, magazine clipping, etc., etc., is absolutely necessary. I have a lot of really neat stuff! That was the nice surprise. The problem was that I couldn't bring myself to throw any of it away, because it was really neat stuff...LOL.

This is what all that really neat stuff looked like before I moved it.

This is what all that really neat stuff looked like after I moved it. Notice the big improvement? LOL

Okay, it's not that bad now. I assembled white cabinets, fit in all the items and product I need to keep close by or in the house, and they turned out great. All the mess is hidden from view, and I like that.

This is what all that really neat stuff looks like now.

What isn't in the house is now organized on shelving in the garage, so I'm beginning to feel good about this. I think it all may actually work out...oh to be organized! Every crafters dream....:0)

Wow, I am impressed you got everything so organized! We just moved (yes, we lugges old National Geographic magazines 600 miles for no apparent reason, and the kids decided many of the things they so carfully packed and we lugges those 600 miles they no longer want - 4 trips to goodwill so far) and my studio is a mess. You did a great job at getting setu up and organized! Moving is exhausting, difficult, and stressful. I bet you are glad it's over.
